Spragga Benz x Salaam Remi’s “Shotta Culture” Album Release Party
Words by DJ Gravy::: Pics by Tono Radvany
You may have caught some of the “Shotta Culture” music videos (and some behind the scenes footage) we at Largeup posted over the the last few months. And this past Tuesday, August 31st, dancehall icon, Spragga Benz, and Grammy winning producer, Salaam Remi, got some friends together to celebrate the release of their new concept album, “Shotta Culture” at Santos Party House.
Music videos off the record were played on a giant screen and I (DJ Gravy) was there to play some tunes alongside Federation’s Max Glazer and Kenny Meez. Largeup’s Tono Radvany caught some pics that captured the vibe of the evening, enjoy.
